In the MfSS we’ve provided a set of use-cases, each providing a body-of-knowledge covering a particular application area. This is explained further in Our Approach.

The lists below show the relationship between the use cases and the objectives and impacts they help to achieve. This shows what use cases support your priorities, and provides a viewpoint on the relationships between the use cases.

The mapping is based on the achievements that the use case supports. Direct achievements are those that are addressed directly by the objectives and processes outlined in a use case, and are therefore supported strongly. Indirect achievements are those that are created consequentially to the primary focus of the use case and therefore may not be supported as strongly.



The Manual for Smart Streets is a living document that will continue to develop through engagement. Please do contact us using the link below if you have any questions, feedback, or content to contribute.
